Braces are an orthodontic appliance that are used to straighten or align teeth. Braces can also be used as an alternative to surgery in cases where surgery is too risky, such as in young children or patients with severe medical conditions. There are two main types of braces: fixed and removable. Fixed braces are anchored directly onto the teeth, while removable braces can be taken off and cleaned at the end of each day.
There are different types of braces that are Used in orthodontics namely
1.metal braces: metal braces are the oldest form of braces . In this metal brackets are attached on the teeth and a wire is passed through them and held in place by elastic ties.
2.ceramic braces : ceramic braces are same as metal braces just that instead of metal ceramic brackets are sed making them less noticeable . As they are less noticeable they are a popular choice among adults .
3.self ligating braces : self ligagting braces are avialble both in metal and ceramic only differnce being instead of elastic ties to hold the wire ,the brackets have door o slot to lock the wire .as no elastic ties are required,the results produced are faster .
4.lingual braces : lingual braces are similar to metal braces only differnce being the brackets are attached to the inner side of your upper and lower teeth .this can case cause change in your speech as well as irritation to your tongue.
